Water, we drink it, we wash with it, and we use it to grow our food. In California, it’s running out. The historical drought in the west is now being felt in grocery stores around the country. On the left, that’s what California is supposed to look like, that's one year ago. On the right, that's how it looks like today. That’s right, two thirds of the state is classified as being in extreme or exceptional drought. These are the most serious categories. If it continues, it will be the worst drought in 130 years. This will hurt you, even if you don't live in California. Why? California’s 80,000 farms produce nearly half of the US grown fruits, nuts and vegetables, that's more than any other states in the country. And some of things you put in your grocery cart, you can’t get anywhere else. 90% of national supply almonds,_, walnuts, _, dates,_ , raisins, _,olives, and pomegranates, they all come from California. Many of them water-intensive, and water is in short supply. And it's not just the grains, wine, beef, dairy could all face prices pressures, pricing crisis. So how high could prices go?
